on the Giants radar

Post  Big_Pete on Wed Mar 04, 2009 8:58 pm

from http://blogs.nfl.com/category/pro-days/

Ten NFL teams sent representatives to Miami (Fla.) to see the private workout for 15 prospects on Friday. The players ran on grass.

CB Bruce Johnson worked out just three days after running drills at the combine. He checked in at 5-foot-9 and 3/4 inch, weighing 167 pounds.

Johnson posted better times in most categories than he did in Indianapolis. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 and 4.45 seconds, had a 38.5 inch vertical, a 10.4 inch long jump, a 4.03 inch short shuttle and a 6.92 second three-cone drill. Johnson did not do the bench press.

The most notable player to work out besides Johnson was fellow CB Carlos Armour. The defensive back was not at the combine, but looked good in Friday’s work out. He measured in at 6-2 and 1/8 inch, 201 pounds.

He ran a 4.55 and 4.59 second 40-yard dash, recorded a 37.5 inch vertical, a 10-foot long jump and 10 bench press reps.

The most high-profile member of a team to show up was Giants VP of Player Evaluation Chris Mara.

It is notable that Chris Mara was mentioned, in his blogs so far he has only mentioned one other guy from a team.

I would imagine it means the Giants have strong interest in Bruce Johnson who is likely a 3rd - 4th round CB prospect

Auburn Pro Day

The players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff and Giants scouting director Mark Ross were among the player personnel executives in attendance. Hmmm, wonder if Alabama’s pro day taking place tomorrow had an impact on the number of teams going to Auburn today?

Their notable prospects

DT Sen’Derrick Marks, an underclass defensive lineman, measured in at 6-foot-1 3/8, 301 pounds. He kept his 40 time from the combine. He had a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.76-second short shuttle, a 7.80-second three-cone drill and 16 bench press reps. He participated in position drills.

CB Jerraud Powers checked in at 5-9, 187 pounds. He ran a 4.43 and 4.45 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.31 short shuttle and a 6.91 three-cone drill. He looked very good in the positional drills.

G Tyronne Green came in at 6-1 1/2, 305 pounds. He didn’t run the 40 due to a quad strain. He had a 28 1/2-inch vertical, an 8-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.80 short shuttle and an 8.12 three-cone drill.

RB Brad Lester measured in at 5-9 1/2, 190 pounds. He ran a 4.55 and 4.52 in the 40, had a 38.5-inch vertical, a 10-foot, 4-inch broad jump, a 4.36 short shuttle, a 7.06 three-cone drill and 18 bench press reps.

for Giants players I can get inside football's info (subcription only)

other than that rotoworld is reasonable and has a contract link for each player (do a google search - rotoword + player name)

eg: from http://www.rotoworld.com/CONTENT/playerpages/player_contract.aspx?sport=NFL&id=2078

Contract Information for Anquan Boldin

7/31/2005: Signed a four-year, $22.67 million contract extension through 2010. The deal contains $10 million guaranteed, including a $5 million signing bonus. (Base Salaries:) 2009: $2.75 million, 2010: $3 million, 2011: Free Agent



btw there will be players that I missed in this thread
